Can anyone help approximate the PPD from my new rig? - Page 2

Would amount of memory should I allocate to the FAH VM? The guide I'm following suggests 1GB but I have 16GB overall so should I allocate more?

As much as you can spare, basically.

With 16GB tot I'd go with at least 4GB, I think you can get away with 2GB if your only running regular SMP. I have 8GB and went with 4GB on my Windoze machine.

Ah ok, I'm having trouble getting it to work though, it says the FAH VM is set of 8 CPU's but VM Player only supports 4?

You have to download a older version of VMware. 3.0 supports 8 core machines while the newer version only supports 4 cores (manually Select the version on VMware's page) . I was using this same client but dumb'd it down to 4 cores but I was unable to use MY GPU 3 client. Can someone help me out on what I need to do to get my GPU 3 client to fold.

Thx in advance.

Also when it is folding in the VM the CPU usage only goes up to 50/ 60%, surely it can't be folding as well as in Windows if it uses that little?

Did you follow the guide posted in this thread? Also check the vm is set to use 8 cores. Check that when you create the settings for the VM that you use the SMP -8 flag

What version of VM player are you using? You need to be using the 3.0.0 linked in that guide.

Yeah I changed to 3.0.0, I foolishly presumed I needed to use the most recent one. tongue.gif

I have it folding away at the moment, however I have absolutely no idea how to check PPD or anything haha, I'll just have to keep the Stanford page open. thumb.gif
